Our initial idea was to offer a cheap alternative to large data-providers, who require an expensive monthly subscription which locks you in for a year or something. That’s why we offer an open platform with the possibility of buying a single indicator without going through a lengthy registration process. And we proudly provide our services to a number of universities and students all over the world. We have also been increasingly helping consulting agencies, banks and investment funds with finding data or preparing analyses.
For references, please, see some of the clients and partners we have been working with recently:
A: The word Helgi represents trust, security or inviolability. It is an old Norse word for the sacredness of a person, or a holy place, which describes the values we believe in nicely. We have however no close connection to the Scandinavians.
A: We are based in the Czech Republic and mostly analyse the region of Central and Eastern Europe. But our data cover more than 95% of the world's population and the global economy.
A: Unlike many data providers, we offer plenty of information for free. With us, you can also buy a single data series you are interested in for peanuts without the need to register or buy an expensive subscription for months. And unlike many others, we care about the numbers rather than just passively reproducing them. We use the data in our own reports, so we often mix the sources to complete time series.
A: We take most of our information from public sources such as statistical offices and central banks and have licencing agreements with various associations and multi-national organisations to reproduce their data. We often mix them together and create our own ratios when useful.
A: Absolutely; just send us your request (to email@example.com) and we will let you know if what you want is available, or how much time it would take/cost to find. We also do special proprietary analyses by special request; see more in the report section
A:: First of all, we aim to continuously improve the quality of the current data, so we will continue adding more figures to the existing database. We will also add more ratios to the existing topics and will be extending the time horizon and adding more monthly and quarterly figures to the existing annual indicators.
